Andy Murray says he and Emma Raducanu have 'talked' about forming Wimbledon doubles dream team

Emma Raducanu and Andy Murray

Andy Murray has revealed he and Emma Raducanu have 'talked about' forming a British doubles dream team at Wimbledon.

Murray and Raducanu are the only British Grand Slam winners in the modern era, although they are at very different stages of their careers.

Andy Murray has played mixed doubles with Serena Williams at Wimbledon before, and he has confirmed there have at least been talks about teaming up with Emma Raducanu.

However, with both players keen to focus on good singles run, it appears the plan is unlikely to come to fruition this year.

“Last year we talked about it, but we both ended up doing well in the singles," Murray said.

“I would love to play with Emma at some stage. I'm sure we will both focus on having good runs in the singles, but yeah – I'd love to do that."

Murray is currently playing the Surbiton Trophy in the UK as part of his grass court preparations.

He won his opening match of the challenger event against Jurij Rodionov before revealing he hopes to be seeded for Wimbledon this year.

For that to happen, Murray would need to have good deep runs at both Stuttgart and Queen's, but he is confident of delivering just that.

"I have high expectations of myself and lofty goals for the coming weeks, which I discuss with my team regularly," he said.

"I’m not going to share them now, but I’ve trained hard, I feel grass is my best surface and I’ve prepared as best as I can.

"I can’t control my results or performances at Wimbledon right now, but I can control my attitude on the court, and I can guarantee I’ll give it 100 per cent to have a good run."
